Electrical team passes national test

A big “well done” to Darren Reay (left) and Ian Beattie for passing their NAPIT annual assessments.

It means our electrical department again meets national Government approved standards of competency in all electrical work – from safety to on-site quality of work.

NAPIT is the Government approved body that confirms the competence of members to carry out electrical work in the UK.

A tough examination of our working practices by an assessor for our group electrical qualifying surveyor Ian (right), while multi-skilled electrician Darren showed examples of the work the team has completed.

The assessment was divided into two half days covering all aspects of electrical work – safety, training, insurances, monitoring and inspection regimes to on-site quality of work, certification and individual competency.

It’s a key assessment for Bernicia to pass – NAPIT confirming the high quality of electrical work we deliver for tenants and the excellent controls we have in place to do so.
